@ Gautam – AYI-Media
Apologies for such a delayed response! I just now noticed this post.
re: -what types of shortcode does connections use?
re: -Can we filter results or organize results by state – as in list users by states in alphabetical order – this is our current system which we would like to make more visually appealing and organized: http://www.amrityoga.org/classes.html
Sorry, no, grouping is not supported. But you can create separate page for each state.
re: -Can we customize templates for custom fields like “Studio” or “Certifications”
yes, but it will take a developer to add those fields.
Again, apologies for the late reply! I hope I have answers your questions thoroughly.
